EXPAND FULL BIO

In 1997 Wyclef released his first solo album, The Carnival, which went platinum with help from steady radio-play and massive MTV rotation for the single Gone Til November. His second CD Ecleftic: 2 Sides II a Book went gold.

He has also produced hits for other artists including Whitney Houston’s smash hit My Love and Carlos Santana’s Maria Maria. His production company, Fugee Camp, features upcoming new artists such as his brother and sister who perform as Melky Sedeck. An enigmatic performer, Wyclef plays several instruments on stage while rapping in English, Creole, Spanish and even Japanese. His foundation, The Wyclef Jean Foundation, promotes musical education among kids. When asked if he considered himself to be more Haitian or American, he replied ‘I’m 100% Haitian. I’m proud to be Haitian. I still have my Haitian passport. I represent Haiti in everything that I do. Every head in the industry knows that I’m Haitian. They know what I’m about. I was Haitian first. Haiti till I die!’
